An Awesome Woman
I just lost my Gran...I almost cannot believe it...she was 85 and was the sweetest person you could ever know and was so much fun to be around. I have such great memories and will cherish them forever. This is the grandma that at my Grandpa's 60 birthday did a little dance to the stripper song swinging her dresses untied belt and grooving to the music. She accepted my desire to follow my own spiritual path better than my parents did in the beginning. She loved watching Cheech and Chong. She had a habit of falling asleep 10 minutes before the end of many movies. I was told stories of her throwing her rubber shoes down the street at my dad and uncle when they were little rascals. She was full Italian and was everything that meant for an Italian woman living in Philly. She never learned to drive and when she lived in South Philly I remember walking with her and my great grandma to 7th St and the Italian market to go shopping. She made the best meatballs in the world and the best lasagna. She loved to make peas and pasta and I have to say Gran, that was not one of my favs. When Gran and Pops would dance together you could see how much he adore her...and now they are back together. I love you both and will miss you until the day I see you again.
